Workhorse – Fire Before All


Workhorse – Fire Before All
CMF Records – 2012
Metal, Death, Thrash, Speed, Punk, Progressive, Sludge
Rated: ***

With unrelenting aggression and furious rage the Californian thrash death metal formation Workhorse plows their way ever forward towards a burning future. And on their debut album from 2012 called Fire Before All they set the world ablaze. With a definite homage to the classic thrasher the guys from Workhorse implore progressive structuring and devouring sludge to stomp into their very own future. With heavy hitting violent staccato, intense breaks and growling vocals the songs function as a firestorm and it’s only when the guitar aims for a bit of melodic soloing that one is able to catch a bit of fresh but blistering hot air. For Workhorse’s inferno sucks the oxygen not only from the air around you; but also right out of your throat and lungs together with guttural screams of exultation.

  2. This doesn't sound like the Workhorse band who put out Beasts of Burden.They were more sludgy stoner. This sounds like Meshugga.. Can anybody verify this is the same band? thanks
